    Survival Guide Pro's review

    Published: 2015-06-18, by .

    Pocket guide from the US military including many survival techniques and useful references

    6.7
    • So much information
    • Lightweight
    • Potentially lifesaving
    • Ugly UI
    • Images fall off the screen
    • Hope it doesn't rain

    "Pumas shall fear you"

    THE VERDICT

    Survival Guide is a military handbook of techniques you could potentially use to survive in the wild, including methods to procure water, how to build a shelter, and venomous snakes and lizards. It's super lightweight and chock-full of legitimately useful information. The UI could use a serious update - plenty of the images fall far off the screen, making it fairly difficult to read. However, in a survival situation, you're not going to be too picky, are you?

    THE PROS

    It's totally free, and there really is a huge amount of information in here. If you think you might be heading into a dangerous situation, it's worth equipping yourself with this guide.

    THE CONS

    Many images fall off the screen, which makes them hard to read (you can scroll and see them, though). If it rains on your device, you're just as boned as if you had brought a paper reference guide.

    Description

    Survival skills are techniques a person may use in a dangerous situation (e.g. natural disasters) to save themselves or others (see also bushcraft). Generally speaking, these techniques are meant to provide the basic necessities for human life: water, food, shelter, habitat, and the need to think straight, to signal for help, to navigate safely, to avoid unpleasant interactions with animals and plants, and for first aid. In addition, survival skills are often basic ideas and abilities that ancient humans had to use for thousands of years, so these skills are partially a reenactment of history. Many of these skills are the ways to enjoy extended periods of time in remote places, or a way to thrive in nature. Some people use these skills to better appreciate nature and for recreation, not just survival.

    *** Survival Guide is completely based on the U.S Military Survival Manual 21-76. ***
